"We enjoyed the city of Calitri. The shop keepers supplied us with small amounts of necessary condiments and groceries for a fair price.
Nicole was a wonderful resource, going beyond to help us find medical care.
The unit was cozy and clean.
Coffee shop was conveniently located across the street."

"Four of us (two couples) stayed for 5 nights. I had a recommendation from a friend who had stayed with Antonio last year and the villa was even better than expected. Immaculate, very tastefully decorated, modern with Miele appliances, everything high end - a beautiful home (villa) with all the personal touches. Several patio areas on different levels for lounging in the sun or reading in the shade with its own garden area - we ate some of Antonio's grapes and plums. The views are spectacular! Everything you dreamed of from your cliffside Mediterranian villa.
Do not expect to drive up to this villa. Antonio meets you at a prearranged spot on the coastal road and you then follow him and his scooter up to a small minimarket where you park briefly. From there Antonio helps you and your luggage up another level and then down 65 steps to his villa. The Amalfi coast is not a great place for cars. But it all works and Antonio is very helpful and very organized. There is a book in the villa with all the local details which he takes time to explain - restaurants, tours, the minimarket, buses and fares. etc. He also takes time to ask what your planned activities are while in Praiano and provides excellent advice one would give to a friend. If you go, listen to what he says. Once the info session is complete, you follow him back down to the minimarket and then the coastal road where he will park your car and you will take the 235 steps up to the villa. Don't let the step thing deter you - we are all 70'ish and mastered the labrynith of steps and walkways.
There are two hidden gems in renting this villa. The first is Antonio - we wish we had more time to spend with him personally. The second is Praiano. Its a smaller place in between Positano and Almalfi - less touristy and you get a better chance to fit into a neighbouhood and experience life as the locals do. All the local attractions are available to you by bus or boat but if by bus go early as they fill up with tourists going to Almalfi and Ravello."
